Iris 39 is a clean and very soapy iris. Refined in aesthetic, but with a strong and lasting intensity. I like soapy fragrances so Iris 39 was an immediate hit with me. However the strong and lasting intensity that so many others crave ended up overwhelming me in even the smallest amount. There are some strong chems here. If you like soapy iris and have a hard time getting fragrances to last …Read more

Iris 39 is beautiful. It's a very earthy floral which is heavy on the violet. The earthiness is patchouli and the iris I believe. According to LuckyScent the notes are: Iris*, lime, patchouli, rose, ylang ylang, musk, violet, ginger, cardamom, and civet. I tested almost all of the Le Labo offerings recently and this and Patchouli 24 were the standouts to me.

*Iris 39 uses orris …

Out of the bottle, it’s Pine-Sol. First on, it’s a slightly woody iris with a faint medicinal note like eucalyptus. Creamy Iris with the stalks on and then drying to loads of just Iris, but that sharp unpleasant medicinal note stays. I think it’s the ginger. Goes faint within an hour, but stays there, very faintly, pretty, but almost a soapy Iris. The medicinal note ruins it for me,though.

The iris is my favorite flower. I'm dying for a perfume that really smells like one. This is close. It is not dry and cold like many, such as Iris Silver Mist. It is not too sweet or cloying like Iris Nobile.There is an earthiness. While it does not smell exactly like the iris flower, it smells like someone took the whole flower, the stem. leaves and all, and put it in a blender …Read more

Beautiful, airy, fresh-yet-complex iris, for all of about 30 minutes. Then: iris-scented soap. Sigh.

Yeah, no kidding! What is all this hatin' about? this is a fabulous non-powdery, non-woody iris scent that lasts all day. If it weren't for the price I'd be all over it and more. It is not nearly as chilly as Iris Silver Mist, nor as manly as TDC Bois d'iris, nor as yawn inducing as Aqua di Parma Iris Nobile, and not as powdery cool as Hiris. It's not ethereal but …Read more

What's all this hatin' on my fave iris fragrance?? And I've worn many, including ISM, Bois d'Iris, Hiris, et al. I get dark, velvety and earthy from the start, with soft patchouli and a very appealing musk at the end ... though the iris remains. This is one of two or three frags from my collection of, er, hundreds that always gets me compliments from strangers. Maybe I just …Read more

Le Labo fragrances are beautiful masterpieces - this doesn't mean I'd wear every one of them, but they are all so complex and change wonderfully from initial spritz to dry down. Love that in a fragrance!


<p>In any case, Iris 39 really ends up being more of a patchouli scent on me - with the patch becoming very predominant in the dry down. [That's one thing …

Manages to be both perfumey and dirty, like iris perfume put on unwashed skin. There used to be a woman who rode the same bus as I did, who had obvious mental problems. She would ride the bus between the two nearby department stores, apply all their perfume testers, get back on the bus and talk about herself in the third person ("And the manager told her to stay out of that department store …Read more

I like this Iris, but I don't love it. Iris 39 is a spicy Iris with a dark and musky note in the background. Iris is one of my favorite notes. I happen to like Iris Silver Mist, and I love Bois d'Iris and La Pausa (except for the lack of lasting power). This doesn't smell much like any of those (except, of course, for the iris note). This is warm and it's very long lasting on …Read more
